Prior work on centralized Routing Control Platform (RCP)
has shown many benefits in flexible routing, enhanced security,

and ISP connectivity management tasks. In this paper,
we discuss RCPs in the context of OpenFlow/SDN, describing
potential use cases and identifying deployment challenges
and advantages. We propose a controller-centric hybrid
networking model and present the design of the Route-
Flow Control Platform (RFCP) along the prototype implementation
of an AS-wide abstract BGP routing service.
